As always on a Thursday the hall was buzzing this week with table rearranging, lots of discussion and catching up with each others' news, sharing sewing ideas, recommendations for shows to watch on TV, etc etc. Always enjoyable.
Gill has had a shoulder reconstruction and will be in rehab for a while. We look forward to her return to quilting.
Deb T is having a clean up. She brought in fabrics and patterns for us to share.
Sandy found the perfect fabric for the border of the Christmas Challenge quilt. It really sets the quilt off.
Susan H. mentioned an exhibition that is on for the whole of May in the Embroiderers' Guild building:

It was good to see Kathy this week. She is hand quilting an anniversary quilt to mark her 30 years in Australia and her marriage to John.
Also good to see Susan St J return after her long illness.
Heather also mentioned that Hayley is leaving the Torres Strait Islands. Unfortunately she will not be in Sydney but will try to visit when she can.
Show and Tell:
Three quilts from Marie K. who manages to whip up a quilt in no time.The first one uses Japanese fabrics as does the second. The third is striking.
